USF Homosexual Activism update!
It's Commencement time at USF again. And who has USF chosen as their primary honoree? Ambassador Mark Dybul, an out and open homosexual.
From: Lifesite News:
"Dybul is the United States’ Global AIDS Coordinator, a position that carries the rank of ambassador. He has the role of leading the implementation of President Bush’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. Dybul was sworn in by Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice October 10, while his homosexual “partner”, Jason Claire, held the Bible.
Referring to Claire’s mother, who was also present, as Dybul’s “mother-in-law,” Rice commented, “You have a wonderful family to support you, Mark.”
It will be good here to remember the guidelines of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops set forth in "Catholics in Political Life":
"The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions."
It was good to see our California Catholic Bishops coming out against yesterday's California Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex "marriage." Let's hope they're even more forceful during the upcoming Constitutional Amendment battle. We'd hoped to see some of our other local Catholic institutions on the side of the Church on this issue, but as usual we've been disappointed.
*For the origin of the "Gay Rome" tag, go here. It's at about 1:14 into this audio of a USF seminar, sponsored by the Lane Center, and held at (where else?) Most Holy Redeemer.
